“‘Mad Max: Fury Road,’ the ballet — that’s what filmmaker and producer Kate Duhamel has created in “Fury,” an apocalyptic ballet-rock show.
The spectacle features music by art-rock band Yassou and violinist Kristina Dutton, choreography by Danielle Rowe, and videos by animator Brandon MacFarland. The production sold out shows in San Francisco last year, and it now makes its way to the East Bay, taking over the Tortona Big Top, a 12,000-square-foot circus tent in downtown Oakland for just one weekend.
The cast has changed a bit: San Francisco Ballet corps member Kimberly Braylock will debut as Furiosa, and SFdanceworks star Kendall Teague will perform as Nux. Lines Ballet star Babatunji, who has a background in both hip-hop and ballet, again portrays Max.
It’s big, bold and post-apocalyptic.”
